The traditional rivalry between India and Pakistan will be spiced up by how former skipper Virat Kohli fares at the T20 Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates. The sub-continental rivals will face off in the second match of the tournament on Sunday.
Kohli returns to international cricket after a seven break during which India outplayed the West Indies and Zimbabwe in white-ball cricket. Fact that it was achieved without their once prime batter says plenty about the team and Kohli’s form.
It’s been over 1,000 days since Kohli last scored a century in international cricket. With Pakistan fixture also happening to be his 100th T20I appearance, it is an opportunity for him to end the debate on his future in the shorter version of the game.
“My main aim is to help India win the Asia Cup and the World Cup and I am ready to do anything for the team to make it possible,” he said recently.
The depth in India’s top-order batting in white-ball cricket — especially in T20Is — is so great that in order to accommodate Kohli, they had to leave out someone like Shreyas Iyer.
For Pakistan, the major talking point are the blows to the pace attack. Shaheen Afridi has been ruled out of the tournament with a knee injury. Also joining the sick bay on Friday was Mohammad Wasim Junior who suffered a side strain.
